Year Purchased: 2011
About: My wife Donna and I have vacationed in Arizona for the last 5 years. We currently live in Saskatchewan Canada where the people are friendly and the winters are cold!! We fell in love with the Arizona desert, sunshine, beautiful mountains and wonderful people. We purchased this home to enjoy the Arizona weather, landscape and nature along with all of the attractions in Phoenix with our family and friends now and when we retire.
Why Sonoran Foothills: We searched extensively for a property that offered everything we were looking for including a peaceful private setting, friendly neighborhood, nature trails, luxury amenities, room to grow with our children and grandchildren, proximity to shopping, fine restaurants, golf and sports. We found it all in Sonoran Foothills. The first time we walked in we knew that this was where we wanted to take off our flip flops beside the pool! It is peaceful, offers luxury amenities and spacious rooms but feels like home. We are only a 15 minutes from boating on beautiful Lake Pleasant, a short 90min drive to Sedona, 20 minutes to the NFL and NHL stadiums and outlet shopping at Tanger Outlets, 15min to Scottsdale and countless golf courses. Our home is so relaxing and offers the perfect spot to unwind and enjoy the Arizona sunshine and star lit skies at night.
The Unique Benefits at this House: 3000 sf bungalow located in the private gated community of Sonoran Foothills with green space and walking paths behind offers privacy and tranquility. The green space beside the house offers young families a play structure and covered picnic area. Across the street and through the security gate is the Sonoran Foothills Community Center offering a huge lap pool, water play park, tennis courts, soccer field, volleyball courts, basketball courts, bbq's, walking and cycling paths and nature paths into the mountains.
Our home is warm and inviting the moment you walk through the 8' door and into the large open area. The home features a beautiful fireplace to snuggle up in front of and enjoy a glass of wine or good book. The backyard is so private and peaceful. The only sounds you hear is your favourite music if you so desire through the patio speakers or the sound of birds singing and waterfall in the pool.
